A roof is a roof, right? Not exactly. While you’re unlikely to find any thatched roofs here in Maryland, there are a variety of roof styles and materials to choose from based on your tastes—and budget.
By far the most common type of roof in Maryland, asphalt shingle roofs are relatively easy to install and less costly than wood, wood shakes, tile, metal, and slate roofing. They also have a long lifespan, adding to their popularity among homeowners. Asphalt shingles come in two types: fiberglass and organic. Regardless of the type, asphalt shingles come in a variety of styles and colors to match your taste and budget.
A viable alternative to traditional slate or shake roofs, composite roofing is lightweight, fade-resistant and come in a wide assortment of colors and styles to choose from. Although composite roofing comes with a higher price tag than asphalt, it is less costly to install and maintain than actual slate or shakes, and can be virtually indistinguishable from the real thing.
Commonly made of cedar, wood roofs became popular in Colonial America and are still used on about 10% of residential roofs today. Wood roofs come in two types: shingles and shakes. Shingles are less expensive than shakes and have a smoother, more uniform shape. Wood shakes are thicker and have a more rustic appearance. For both shingles and shakes, a fire retardant pretreatment is recommended—and required in some areas—to minimize the chance of fire spread. With proper care and maintenance, wood roofs can provide attractive, reliable protection for your home for 15-20 years.
Slate has been used for roofing purposes for hundreds of years around the world. And with good reason! Slate roofs may be prone to chipping, but are generally easy to repair and can last 50-75 years. All slate roofs should be checked periodically by a professional to check flashings, missing or cracked slates, rusted nails, and damaged ridge slates. Despite the increased maintenance, with proper care, your slate roof will add a classic, sophisticated look to your home for years to come.
First appearing in the U.S. in the 19th century, metal roofing has experienced a return to popularity in recent years as an accent material used over porches and bay windows. While a bit more costly, metal roofing offers a lifespan of up to 50 years, comes in a range of colors to choose from and delivers excellent marks for curb appeal.
If you’re in the process of constructing a new building, or planning the replacement of an outdated roof on an existing building, there are a variety of commercial roofing choices to consider, including built-up roofing, modified bitumen, single ply, liquid-applied roofing and more based on your needs and requirements. Lifespan and cost varies by type and the size of the application. For full details, we’re here to help.
